Thanks. And, if there is one, I want to take you to the Prom.

Thank you for even considering it. I just hope Rob doesn't find out about this--he sometimes gets a little cranky when he finds me drooling about the place.

It is good to know I can find you around when necessary (or just for fun and games).

Damn, that guitar auction thing SDH posted about has me wondering about our boys these days...just doesn't seem like the spirit of 68 to me.

Here's some of that spirit - at least they still recognize it in others (I've really come to appreciate Jackie Green's work of late):

Yes - that's the spirit indeed, bluedevil. There's a treasure trove of very fine Ryan and the Cardinals shows to be had here. RA's songwriting can be astonishingly accomplished and goes straight from the ears to lodge in the heart and brain. (We've had this conversation before haven't we?)

I like Jackie Green's stuff too. There used to be a few Jackie Green shows hidden away in the Open Source Audio archive but they seem to have vanished sadly. Phil is certainly a whole lot livelier playing with JG and Larry Campbell than he seems to be with Weir et al. JG simply takes control of the old Dead material and stamps his personality on it - but without losing respect for the original. I remember listening to him doing a barnstorming New Speedway where he quoted the Simpsons Theme part way through. That's chutzpah! And just a reminder that some of the Dead songs are strong enough to stand on their own apart from the band that made them.

Yea, Jackie is from the area where I'm living (Salinas/Watsonville) so he often plays around here (Santa Cruz especially) and the local radio station, KPIG, plays a lot of his solo stuff and from 2 Skinny Guys (correct title?). Anyway, he seems to be a very accomplished singer/songwrite/gunslinger for a guy that is still several years shy of 30 and the more I hear, the more I like. That why I give Phil a big heap of "there ya go" for introducing those guys to a new and wider audience and taking chances with them - unlike what I feel this latest incarnation of the old brothers is up to. I certainly do not begrudge Phil, Bob, Mickey and Billy from wanting to play together again, and I sincerely wish them well and hope they have a blast and put money in the bank for them and theirs long after they pass, but from what little I've heard to date, I'll not be opening my wallet (not saying I won't go if get comped, but it will have to be a very convenient time and place).
